- Short recapitulation of basics of object-oriented programming in C++ (classes, methods, operators)
- Memory management (variables, references, pointers)
- Constant values and objects
- Error handling (exceptions)
- Dynamic polymorphism (virtual inheritance)

Formalities:Successful completion of the module typically requires passing an exam at the end of the semester. For PhD students special conditions may apply. Details will be given in the first lecture.
Prerequisite for admission to the exam are achieving 50% of the points in the exercises and active participation in the exercise group.
Exam:The exam will take place in the last week of the semester during lecture time.
Exercises:The lecture series and accompanying exercises are managed using a website created by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. Due to limitations of the backend PhD students have to register using a special link if they do not yet have an account from their undergrad days.
